Wouldn’t you like to come home and wipe your feet on this after a long day at the trails? I know I would and it would probably stop some of the dirt from making it’s way into my house. I could probably build a set with all the dirt I’ve emptied out of my vacuum over the past few years. QBMX teamed up with Odyssey to give these mats to their top 25 dealers. Lucky for us they made a few extra and are now giving them away. To win one all you have to do is post on qbpbmx.com from now…
These have been in the works for a while now, but they are finally available. They have an Aitken approved circular pattern with a medium feel, and they come with Par Ends. You can get them in black or gum and from anywhere that Odyssey is sold.
So apparently tonight is bike check night. The next one up is from none other than Tom Dugan. Head over to the Odyssey site to see what Tom is using to get high these days.
I saw over on The Merged that the new Tom Dugan signature grips from Odyssey are now available. They’re a soft mushroom style grip with a feather design strategically place across the high wear area. You can get them in turquoise, red, gum, and black and they come with a set of Par Ends.
Looks like Odyssey went ahead and made Tom Dugan some grips to go on his new bars. Check out them and some other new goodies from Odyssey over on The Merged.
Back at the end of last summer The Merged spotted that Odyssey was working on some signature grips for Mike Aitken. It’s looking like they are almost ready hit the market as this picture and a bit of info just surfaced. They’re going to have a medium feel, be available in black and gum, and will have the installation instructions molded right into the flange. While I personally am a fan of the mushroom style grip, these do look like they would be pretty comfy.
Mike Aitken’s Hellbent gloves are now available in a full length version. These things just scream Smokey and the Bandit to me, and that’s not a bad thing. Hop over to Odyssey to check them out in the distressed and oxblood colors.
I used to swear by gloves when I was younger. Like to the point where I couldn’t really ride without them. At some point I lost one of my gloves while on a trip to California. The remaining glove wasn’t white and covered with rhinestones so going for a Michael Jackson look was out. Pretty much from that day on I never wore gloves riding again. While you definitely wouldn’t find me 360ing off of any roofs with these I certainly would dig in them. The touch screen friendly mesh has me extra excited though I would probably wear it…
KC mixes a bit of fly fishing in with his riding in this new one from Odyssey. Quite a departure from your normal everyday web edit!
I had a kid email me the other day asking why you would want brakes at the trails. It was a legitimate question and his reasoning behind it made sense so I resisted the urge to reply back with some smart assed dickarty. I certainly appreciate a good set of stoppers and I think its safe to say that the majority of people who come to this site do as well. Kurt over at The Union just posted up a review of Odyssey’s new Springfield Brake. Not much has changed in the last two decades as far as brake design…
